retired and congressman of a congressional district, and john kerry for 11 years, and recruited to run for office. i was much younger than that. i love coming to the space of good lighting. i can speak to this personally because now that i am an elected official the corley woman serving on that body and the first woman of color on that body's 102 year history. [applause] >> why does that matter? why is that relevant? i appreciate the applause, nothing to do with a personal achievement. it is the collective and shared victory for all of us. it means the solutions we are developing in government are more comprehensive and fully informed because of the different perspective so i thought a great deal about this issue of attraction and retention but more than that, how do we keep native bostonians? we were losing young people who were raised here and going somewhere else. they do come back and go on this pilgrimage to see what else is out there but they do come back. to the point about social venues this is an issue i am working on. we have 22 distinctive neighborhoods and is easy to be ver
'm not a constitutional scholar which i know shocks both of you. can john kerry be retroactively named president after president obama? >> no. >> stephanie: why not? >> because. >> stephanie: okay. >> no, he can't be. >> stephanie: fine, you're constitutional scholars but i'm not. >> the server crashed at 11:13 they bounced over to -- i don't know where they went -- but they were able to keep them from flipping the votes. that's why rove was so stunned. that's why he didn't bother to write -- >> stephanie: somebody said that. wonder if we can hack it back. maybe we did. >> that's what i called for back then. >> stephanie: except for when we did it it wasn't cheating. it was just winning. winning. drinker. what? is it too late for charlie sheenism? the headline is g.o.p.'s benghazi conspiracy falls apart. white house did not change susan rice's -- any apology to susan rice yet? >> it is not the policy. >> stephanie: for you to apologize ever? not the policy for you not to be bitter? >> clouds! >> fox news dropped ben
as secretary of state and she may not be. obama could decide to go with john kerry or jane armen or who knows who else, right? susan rice has to go up to the united states senate today and meet with -- she will, meet with john mccain and lindsey graham and a couple of other senators and try to explain herself. she shouldn't have to do that. i think it is embarrassing. kevin is calling from chicago. what do you think kevin? >> caller: hey, how do youing, bill? >> bill: good to hear from you. >> caller: if they were a legitimate news organization, wouldn't you go with the fact -- take whatever your guest says and you go with it. but since everybody knows they're the mouthpiece of the republicans, i find it amusing that they're so inept they don't even see what their guest is going to say. it is like how dumb are they? it just reinforcing the bumper sticker on my car as i drive to work this morning. fox news, the more you watch the less you know. >> bill: i like that! send me one. where did you get it? kevin, it let me t
go for an easier option, and that would be senator john kerry of massachusetts. he's someone who could, relatively speaking, glide through the senate with ease compared to susan rice at this point. it all depends on how benghazi shapes up. if it's looking like there's not going to be a big investigation, then susan rice looks like the more likely option. it all depends on how big of a fight he wants in the senate. rick: how wig of a story -- how big of a story do you think it is going to turn out to be, bebb ghazi? -- benghazi? i've heard people compare it to watergate given that no one died from watergate. as we take a look at what we know, what information we have available to us, what do you think is the potential here with this story? >> it depends because we've got a split congress. in the senate, it's run by democrats. they were having closed-door investigations last week, and a lot of democrats told me that they saw this as something that would be difficult to get to the bottom of, full of vague information and, you know, this whole fog of war thing. will we ever really kn
over. i don't think that john kerry is really on everyone's a list anyway and they might be saying are we better off as a nation. >> gretchen: y are right. she is putting those top three republicans in a box in the meeting today. it will be difficult for them to come out now and criticize her, she is the one who offered the olive branch to come and have the meeting with them. it is nothing to do with whether or not she should be secretary of state. but the optics of this and work in her favor in a huge way today. >> steve: generally before somebody is nominated for a big job they go talk to the opposite party. it could be an explanation of why she would being up to capitol hill with mike morell. i said that because this guy's department told me to say that? >> brian: we know the cia's director said someone edited my talking points. it is more than just her side of the story. >> we would be well served to have one group of senators from all of the relative committees interview the witness and dod and department of state and cia should be interviewed so we can get the same story and
prefer john kerry, freeing up space for scott brown. susan rice has degrees from stanford and oxford. patty, republican caller. caller: i wonder if this gentleman is aware that cnn had no problem going into this embassy to find documents. it was deliberate that did not send in the fbi to investigate. this was right before an election, and this gentleman is not sure why it took so long? also, c-span should have done some in depth shows before the election. i am disappointed in how you protected president obama in comparison to the-shows when president bush was president. part of the problem in ameritech is -- in america is the media should put under their caption white house stenographer. there was also a laser with where the attacks were, and that is why he got killed. he was an absolute hero. guest: there is concern with talking points in the mainstream media, as it is called, but in my defense i have written very critical things about barack obama and his presidency over the last three years, and we try our best to be even-handed. host: rob. manassas, virginia. caller: what has bef
't go there. mitt romney would have been a genius. >> you're doing the john kerry if we picked up a basketball -- are we going to say if we picked up a mow to speed cross way attracted baja -- >> dude -- >> the winners are not the geniuses that the press set them up to be and our losers and fellow republican officials are not like the reject disaster campaigns -- >> man -- >> they're labeling mitt romney as. i'm struck by the unleashing on him. >> first of all -- >> i am too -- >> first of all, mitt romney, if he had gone quietly into that dark night, would not have been pounded as hard. >> of course. >> but mitt romney comes out and doubles down on his 47% remarks, when he confirms everybody's worst suspicions, including small government republicans who were distrustful of huge corporations. >> yeah. >> he doesn't help his cause. >> no. >> i believe you are right in that he doesn't help his cause. however, be all these guys, let's -- i'm talking about the ones i'm most struck by are the republican office holders who were -- i'm not going to. i'm not -- >> hold on. republican gove
